It is approved in Europe extension of the compulsory warranty for products purchased by consumers, from two years to three, and that obviously includes Apple products.
Apple will have to offer a three-year warranty in Europe on all the products it sells in our country, like the rest of the manufacturers, as approved today by the Council of Ministers. The new consumer regulations are thus ready to be published in the BOE.
🔸 The #CMin today approved a modification of the current consumer regulations with which it takes a new step in the circular economy strategy.

The outsourcing of “free” digital services is also regulated for the first time, those in which they offer you a service to modify your personal data, such as social networks, music, etc. The durability of a product is also defined as an objective criterion
Apple and the rest of the manufacturers will have to comply with the new regulations from the time it comes into force, we do not know whether retroactively or from that date. This regulatory change is part of a proposal from the European Union, so other countries in the Union may also extend the mandatory warranty period for manufacturers. Good news for consumers.
